Alaska Reference Database

The Alaska Reference Database originated as the standalone Alaska Fire Effects Reference Database, a ProCite reference database maintained by former BLM-Alaska Fire Service Fire Ecologist Randi Jandt. It was expanded under a Joint Fire Science Program grant for the FIREHouse project (The Northwest and Alaska Fire Research Clearinghouse). It is now maintained by the Alaska Fire Science Consortium and FRAMES, and is hosted through the FRAMES Resource Catalog. The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

At the request of public and private wildland fire managers who recognized a need to assimilate current fire effects knowledge, we produced this state-of-the-art integrated series of documents relevant to management of ecosystems. The series covers our...

The 1998 wildland fire season presented conditions favoring increased wildland fire numbers and rapid expansion of area affected. This situation posed complex issues to all wildland fire management agencies in terms of firefighting resource...

In this paper we present evidence for a large-scale (synoptic-scale) meteorological mechanism controlling the fire frequency in the southern Canadian Rocky Mountains. This large-scale control may explain the similarity in average fire frequencies and...

Fire layers in peat columns from bogs, and carbon layers in soil trenches on dry ground were used to analyse the pattern of occurrence of fires in natural spruce [Picea abies] and pine [Pinus sylvestris] boreal forests of Karelia during the last 3000-...

Modern forestry has changed the fire dynamics in the boreal forest, and as a result the size and number of deciduous forest patches have been reduced as well as the number of deciduous trees within coniferous forests. This has exaggerated the...

Since 1977, the extent of forest wildfires in the boreal and western regions of North America increased by 6 to 9x over long-term trends, and an estimated 132x106 ha of temperate and boreal forest burned across the northern hemisphere. Emissions during...

Aim: This paper describes the characteristics of the spatio-temporal distribution of vegetation fires as detected from satellite data for the 12 months April 1992 to March 1993. Location: Fires are detected daily at a spatial resolution of 1 km for all...

In the boreal forests of North America, fire is the keystone ecosystem process that organizes the physical and biological attributes of the biome over most of its range. Boreal forest ecosystem structure and function are described in terms of the...

In summary, the sensitivety study presented in this chapter supports the overall theme of this book (i.e., that fires in the boreal forest play a central role in the exchange of carbon between this biome and the atmosphere). Through a series of...

The literature describing animals’ behavioral responses to fire, discussed in chapter 3, is limited. Furthermore, short-term responses do not provide insights about the vigor or sustainability of the species in an area. Studies of animal populations...
